Box-making machines and printing system - Hard Die Cutter

Hard die cutter can punch out even complex designs sharply by advanced computer control, and it is combined with feeder unit, printer unit and control system.
Shinko's unique high-precision hard die cutter system integrates the printing and die-cutting processes into a single process, greatly reduce box-making losses and improving quality.

Features and Functions

Feeding Unit

Roll less feeder

Roll less feeder

Roll less feeder helps less sheet crushing and maintenance easily!Learn more

Test sheet running device

Test paper threader

After automatically accelerating the machine, only one sheet is fed.

Sheet jam detector

Sheet jam detector

Sheet jams cause machine damage. A sensor detects jams and automatically stops the machine.

Detection device for misaligned sheet feeding

A device that detects misalignment of paper

Detect misaligned sheet feeding and stop feeding.

First sheet setting device (option)

First batch device

After the lot change, a small stack of sheets is automatically fed to the feeder.

Printer (Printing Unit)

Fixed type printer

Plate cylinder elevation type

Unit fixed type, the plate cylinder raises and downs.
Each unit is connected by the carrying belt, the plate cylinder and ink roll can be raised about 100mm above the sheet pass line. The plate cylinder of the not-in-use printers can be raised for changing printing plate, or prepare for the next order, even while the machine is running. It shortens the setup time significantly, and reduces the work.

Chambered doctor blade system (Standard specification)

Chambered doctor blade system

The doctor chamber type is the standard specification. Shinko's unique shape of the chambered doctor blade system ensures sharp and high-quality print images. A 2-roll type for varnishing and solid printing is also available.

Multi-color printing

Multi-color printing

Depending on the combination of printing units, it is also possible to handle multiple colors from 1 color to 4 colors or more.

Anilox roll (selectable)


Carrying Unit

Carrying belt system

Carrying belt system

High-strength timing belts hold the left and right edges of the sheet between the top and bottom to convey the sheet, so even if the sheet is warped, it can be stably conveyed.

Carrying belt center suction

Carrying belt Central suction belt

Since the sheet is sucked at the center of the carrying system, misalignment can be prevented.

Hard Die Cutter

Hard Die Cutter


It cuts sheets of any thickness sharply with the best punching pressure, and clearly perform the complex cutting and folding.
For die cutting, we use hard metal type cylinder with high precision cutting further than urethane cylinder.
It can adjust the die cutting pressure in micron unit.


Main control system

CNC Centralized control system

Equipped with dedicated flexo gluer software that has been developed and improved independently, enabling accurate work in a short setting time.

Teaching function

CNC Teaching function

Machine learns the each settings for sheets and products, so resetting for same order is unnecessary.

Large display (option)

CNC Large display

The large display shows machine status. (machine speed, set up time etc)

Network communication (option)

Send machine setting data to peripherals, and pass data with various management systems.
